About the Lafayette Farmer's Market
The Lafayette Farmers Market operates Saturdays from May to October, 8am ? 12:30p, on 5th Street in downtown Lafayette, Indiana. Our market prides ourselves on offering the highest quality produce and products in our area. As such, we require at least 70% of offered produce or products- by sales or quantity - to be produced or created directly by the vendor. If a vendor sells products or produce not produced first-hand, the secondhand items must have been purchased directly from the producer and cannot exceed 30% in sales or by volume. This keeps our market supportive of local small businesses.
